Title

Ciphered Gangsterism: Visual Storytelling in the film Chekka Chivantha Vanam and Factors Influencing Visual Narrative - A Study.

Authors

Abstract

Visual language is the most unique form of expression that transcends cohesive narrative of events through space and time. Visual Storytelling is the story told primarily through the use of visual media. The term Visual Storytelling covers a broad spectrum of visual mediums from cave drawings, paintings, comics; photography to films. Visual storytelling can overcome language barriers but has its own limitations to socio-cultural background. Film primarily is a visual medium with complementing audio medium. Thus the visual storytelling in a film widely differs from other storytelling narrative mediums such as novels and theatre. What sets film medium apart from any other visual medium is the sense of constructed reality -- the reality that makes us, sometimes, to “suspend our disbelief” This study aims to analyse the critical concepts in visual narrative that aids in storytelling process. Mani Ratnam as a filmmaker, who has done 25 films in 35 years in film industry, is well known for his film aesthetics and visual narration. His mastery over the craft is much appreciated over three decades across India. As a mainstream director, his films have managed to evoke critical response and commercial success. Chekka Chivantha Vanam (Crimson Red Sky) is a Tamil multi- starrer gangster drama ensembling the clan of Senathipathi and his three sons. On the surface, the film talks about the power struggle in the father’s criminal empire, but on the inside, it carefully ciphers the narcissistic patriarchies in the fractured family of criminals. Ironically this film evokes a sense of celebration of nothingness. The methodology used in this study is thematic analysis, which helps in exploring the underlying themes and how it is constructed in this visual narrative. The study aims to look for visual patterns, motifs, symbols and their representation and movement in the film and also to explore how the counterintuitive form plays a role in shaping the film. This study aims to find the layering function of visual narrative by identifying and unifying the visual themes within the film.
